It was a Friday night and my calendar was pretty blank, so I decided on a whim to take in Ladies Night at a local garden center. And if you can't imagine a cool party atmosphere at a retail garden center, imagine this: The hottest band in town, wine tasting, spiked espresso-tasting, Allan Armitage and llamas! (There was lots more, but those were the highlights for me.) And a great turn-out.
Then I see that some Groovin' in the Garden
is going on at a gorgeous public garden in Richmond, Virginia – great musical events all summer.
The point is: Turning gardens and garden centers into night spots is very cool.
